As a celebration of VASSAs 40th anniversary, the society mounted an exhibition to trace the vernacular architecture tradition of the Western Cape, through the links that exist between need, available materials and indigenous building knowledge.
The exhibition was displayed at the University of Cape Town’s Irma Stern Museum.
The curators, contributors and organisers were all members of the Vernacular Architecture Society.
The exhibition looked at buildings within the landscape, both natural and man-made, to demonstrate the remarkable synergy that exists between form, materials and location.
